Seeking Talented and Enthusiastic Young Actors for Jack and the Beanstalk

Audition Notice                                                
Date: Monday, January 14, 2013
Ages:  Kindergarten to Grade 12
Location: Horizon Stage (1001 Calahoo Road)
Time: 4 – 6 p.m., followed by the first rehearsal block 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

All MissoulaChildren’s Theatre (MCT) tour shows are designed for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. There are roles suited for all ages and experience levels. No advance preparation or appointment is necessary, but a smile never hurts at an audition! Students should wear clothing that is easy to move in. Please remember that everyone must stay the entire two hours of the audition. (Parents may stay and watch.) Approximately 50-60 students will be cast in the show, but sadly, there is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast. Due to time constraints, anyone missing the initial audition will not be considered in the casting of the show.

During the audition, two to four Assistant Directors (ADs), ages ten and older, will be selected to help teach and direct the show as well as take on technical responsibilities at performance time. Their logistical help and creative ideas are a vital part of the process, and the experience of the ADs can be just as valuable as that of any cast member.

Please note: Rehearsals for those cast will begin immediately after the auditions on Monday, January 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., so bringing a bag lunch for those chosen would be a great idea. Rehearsals will then run Tuesday, January 15 to Friday, January 18 from 4 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, January 19 from 10 a.m. – noon. Not all children in the cast will be called for all rehearsals. The rehearsal schedule will be announced after the show is cast on Monday.

Jack and the Beanstalk is the first performance in Horizon Stage’s 2012/2013 Family Matinee Series.
Public Performances will be held on Saturday, January 19 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Tickets are $18 Adults & $15 Children & Seniors
Tickets for the entire Family Matinee Series (3 shows) are $40 per person regardless of age.
